Hi, I'm just messaging the active contributers to Marspedia to get their views on the redesign of the front page. I've tried to highlight the important links and made the page more accessible to newcomers. Also I've created a Wikipedia-style "featured articles" section. I'd be really interested to hear your views on this. It's going to take a lot more work, but this is a good start. Primarily I want to extract the important info and cut down on the excessive text that may cause confusion (as suggested by a couple of you). However, I haven't removed anything as yet, simply jigged it around a bit. I'll look forward to getting your input :-) -- Ioneill 08:51, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Hey Peter, is the "featured articles" section on Marspedia similar to how you envisioned it? Any suggestions gratefully received :-) -- Ioneill 08:58, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
- Looks pretty good :) I'd still like to see the "Differences from Wikipedia" bit moved to its own page, with an obvious link from the front page. Other than that, it's great! Hope the other sister sites pick it up! Peter 13:48, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
- Hey thanks :-) I'm trying to pick up the best bits of the Wikipedia design whilst maintaining individuality, think it's working so far. I also agree about some of the content on the front page. Next, I want to create a Marspedia:About page - we don't have one yet, so this would be a good place to put the "Differences from Wikipedia". This will be happening soon ;-) I've already been warned that the sister sites might be "plagiarizing" our redesign, so we'll have to make sure we are ahead of the game! Cheers :-D -- Ioneill 20:21, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
